TomTom has previewed the GO LIVE 1000, the first TomTom product completely designed for connectivity.
Based around an ARM 11 500 Mhz processor, the device also showcases a new Webkit-based user interface and the latest capacitive touch screen technology.
The software and service delivery platform have been optimised for rapid integration of third party applications and easy localisation to match the needs of specific markets or applications. The back end server systems have been completely redesigned, allowing effortless delivery of rich content and downloadable applications, via cable or over the air.
Working with partner Vodafone, TomTom has pioneered an innovative new business model, delivering real-time connectivity seamlessly across 33 European countries for the first time.
With the GO LIVE 1000 a full year of services is now included with the device. This suite of services includes TomTom HD Traffic, mobile speed cameras and local search in 16 countries.
The PND has been upgraded with new features such as a new user interface and an eco-route option.
